End Secret Corporate Campaign Cash


End Secret Corporate Campaign Cash

It has been two years since the Supreme Court decided in the infamous Citizens United case that corporations can spend unlimited amounts of money on political campaigns. Since then, our democracy has been drowning in a tsunami of corporate special interest money. Our government is under the thumb of the Koch brothers instead of the hands of the people.

We cannot ultimately right this wrong until we can organize the states to pass a constitutional amendment that declares what everyone except Mitt Romney seems to understand: corporations are not people and money is not speech.

But until then, we can take action right now to force corporations to make their campaign spending public. Sign the petition below and tell the SEC: No more secret political money. Make all publicly traded corporations disclose their campaign spending to the public.

PETITION TEXT:

We the undersigned urge the Securities and Exchange Commission to enact a new rule requiring all publicly traded corporations to disclose their political spending to their shareholders and the public. The shareholders of a corporation have the right to know how their money is being used. And the public has a right to know who is trying to buy our political process. Unless the SEC takes this action, our democracy will be in the hands of an anonymous few instead in the hands of the public. Please use your power to make our democracy transparent again.
